  1. The way of the Scout!

    This is the 1st post I posted in the thread of the same name. Just thought it should be where everybody could access it.

    "I've made it no secret how I feel about the role Boy Scouts have played in learning so much about the outdoors. That's the key to Outdoors Survival; not to "Survive" in the outdoors, but to "THRIVE" in the outdoors.
